the country was in bad shape. you compare the recovery under obama, this year the economy's improved 1.6%. that's the best he's done. after the recession, when reagan was president, the first year 4% economic growth. the idea that we can't have a growing economy is something that is not being talked about enough, anywhere except for the dining room table. >> the interesting thing about the race the national equilibrium is about two-point race. if mitt romney has a good five days, this race will dwindled down to a two-point race. the environmental factors, all begin to take place. the biggest change that has happened in this, mitt romney wanted this to be a referendum election. at some point, he has to fix that really quick. >> and i think the time is running out. you get three chances. of course, his vp pick hasn't turned out to be so good. we'll get more into that. the convention speech. everyone know that wasn't a speech that really gave us a better idea about mitt romney and the third opportunity has become the debates. 1980s, the republicans constantly go back to the 1980s like tha

in the numbers for obama in the polls has actually made democrats more optimistic about the economy. >> interesting. so the idea of who might win the election is actually affecting the question. >> it appears so. it really does. i'm kind of optimistic. i like to look at this glass half full. you're right that there are some signs of an economic cloud ahead, but, you know, there are some pretty positive signs, too. you've got this trillion dollars of capital on the sidelines, you got these low interest rates that i think can help growth, and you mentioned housing. ali, we haven't built virtually any new housing in five years in this country. you have to think that housing is really going to start picking up. >> steven moore, have you become a democrat? >> no. i think if mitt romney was to pull this out, i think the economy is really going to do well this year. >> for three squares like us, the gdp actually matters, and the reading we got on the gdp this week surprised us. mitt romney hit president obama this week about the gdp number. listen. >> look at the numbers that just came out
this guy can be the president what do we think about obama? with all due respect, i think the economy is in the worst shape since the great depression and nothing has happened to improve it. >> yeah. >> so obama's really vulnerable on the major issue which 70% of the country thinks is the major issue. >> i would argue that "nothing has been done to improve the economy. i think that's debatable and i think we believe the poll." romney is a man at war with himself. he has to it go in and be the aggressor here and take the fight to the president. he also has to prove himself more likable. those two objectives are at odds with each other. >> what does he have to project? >> he has to project a credible program that will sell the american people on -- >> what does he have to project about himself? >> the whole likability thing. >> he has to project confidence in himself?

, growing the economy, with their tax plan. or as president obama's plan would raise taxes on small businesses, job creators and do more to have a government-centered economy. which is what we've had for the past four years and we're still at 8.1 unemployment with 23 million americans looking for jobs. i think that president obama can't change the facts on wednesday night. and i think the contrast will be very clear. so i look forward to seeing that. >> let's talk about the figure, 8.1% unemployment that could be a conservative estimate. when you take into the fact the folks who have just stopped looking. that's been the economic reality in this country for several months now. but governor romney has not been able to move the needle. in fact in many of the battleground states, the needle has started to move in the opposite direction for him. despite these numbers that you just pointed out. why is that? why is the message not resonated yet with just 37 days left? >> you know, i think like i've mentioned earlier. the polls will tighten. you're going to see independents are still very
when asked who can handle the economy better, obama now leads romney by 6 points in ohio and 5 in florida. with five weeks left, with months, years of campaigning isn't romneyus, southbound in danger of losing the rationale for the campaign that he is the better steward of the economy? >> people focus near the end. the president has done a good job of trying to distort the record. higher take home pay for middle class. progrowth economic policies. that right there creates about 7 million jobs. in the final analysis, people are going to realize all the president is offering is more of the same but with another round of stimulus and higher tax returns rates on job creators. we are offering specific reforms. strengthen social security. grow jobs. have an energy policy that unleashes american energy and has energy independence. >> chris: the fact that the message hasn't gotten through as effectively as it could so far is, that your fault, the romney campaign fault report voters' fault? >> it is not the voters' fault. i think the president has done an effective job of trying to conf
president obama has done and all of the empty promises and broken promises and the ugly, stagnant economy, what areitt romney and paul ryan offering to get us back on track, and i think that is what we'll get out of wednesday and if we get that out of wednesday the country understands the choice they have to make. >> chris: governor romney plans to make a major foreign policy speech in next two days. do the two of you think the president engaged in a cover-up in his and the administration's explanation of what and at the u.s. consulate in benghazi. >> i'll let others decide that, there are democrats and republicans in congress calling for an investigation, as we need to have. the response was slow, confused, inconsistent. they first said that it was a youtube video and apontaneous mob and now we know it was a planned terrorist attack. if this was one tragic incident that would be a tragedy in and of itself but it is part of a bigger picture of the fact the obama foreign policy is unraveling, literally, before our eyes and our tv screens and, what mitt romney is going to do, is lay out a v
in obama's handling of the economy and romney. we have two jobs report left before the election. do you think -- well, what do you think the impact will be? >> i don't think there will be all that significant because if it was going to be significant in the jobs report obama would be toast. he has had 43 months in his term so far where the jobless rate is above 8%. now, and all of the time between 1948 and 2009 when obama took office in cumulative months and which the unemployment rate was above. some 39 months and 43 months in just three and a half years of his presidency. those are the staggering your numbers. yet people still say, well, he's trying really i've. lori: he wants to try to cut tax of year and a higher percentage. 75 percent individual income rate. >> it is absurd. there is no economic basis for that other than we don't think people ought to earn that much money, so we're going to take away. that is socialism at its very essence. and so you elected socialist president. voila. you're going to have socialist policy, and that is what you have. he comes out with a 75% tax rat
we don't have damage again controlled by our economy. obama, you told us you were an outsider, and now you have said, boy, you can't change things from the inside. for a health care bill, you actually had to have make a deal with billing pharma. how is reform of washington going to happen if that's what you stand for in your second term, in short, if they're aibl to get into substance based issues, i think one or the other could close the deal, but that is needed in order to get to the closing of the door. and the campaign. >> former representative -- i really enjoyed this debate. >> the challenges of covering the white house and juggling multiple other -- getting enough sleep and the segments that she needs to work on a lot. >> they actually came into the hou white house at the end of the bush administration. the first president i covered with president bush mostly on the weekends and then i started with chuck at the white house. when you have a new president, everything they do is something of interest to your bosses so. we would be doing stories for the today show, for nigh

of newspaper executives. he blamed obama for the anemic recovery and said, "obama's attention has been elsewhere. he was not focused enough on the economy. his attention had been on things like a government takeover of health care and apologizing for america abroad." in our fact check that day, we quoted what obama had said in overseas trips, including an assertion that at times the u.s. had acted contrary to its own ideals or had been selective in where it sought to promote democracy. it had sometimes shown an arrogance toward allies. we pointed out that when he made those kinds of statements that suggested the u.s. is not completely above reproach, he usually balance it with praise for things the country had done right. all that -- that is in a long acknowledging pastdents imperfections. these cannot by any normal dictionaries amount to apologies. either formal or informal. again, last month, when romney accepted his party's nomination, he repeated the assertion that obama had begun his presidency with an apology tour, and obama had confessed the u.s. had "dictated to other nations."
